Lets do this! The program provides great incentives for readers to develop strong winter reading habits, which I need!

The libraries will have drawings for special “Snow Better Time to Read” mugs, winter hats, and regional grand prize gift cards.  So I just signed up and received some great book recommendations: I'll be reading "The Rules of Magic" by Alice Hoffman and "Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. for my first books for the program. Wish me luck. I thought I would trade my eating habit for a healthier reading habit. Anyone want to join me?

The program will run through Saturday, February 29th. It is designed for teens and adults and is open to anyone in the 6th grade or older.

To get registered for the program at a branch, go to the GRRL website, or dowload the Beanstack Tracker app. Readers can log their winter reading at: griver.beanstack.org or in the app.

By downloading and using the app, readers can keep track of their reading, get book recommendations, and earn online badges to help make reading a habit.

So how does it work? For 2020, readers will count each day they spend reading, so any amount of daily reading will make participants eligible for online badges and prizes. Visit the GRRL events page at www.griver.org/events for more information.
